How long does treatment last?
How long the treatment lasts depends not only on your genotype but on the severity of your liver disease, and how you respond to the treatment along the way. Dual therapy, for genotypes 2 and 3, generally lasts for 24 weeks.Triple therapy for genotype 1 can last from 36 to 48 weeks.
If the treatment is not working, or if you have too many side effects, your provider may stop treatment as early as 4 weeks. Treatment may also be stopped if you aren't following your treatment regimen, as directed--such as not showing up for doctor visits, or not taking your medications on time.
